National Sanctity of Human Life Day

I learned from Blest's blog that today is National Sanctity of Human Life Day.

Four and a half years ago my (then) 14 year old sister was pregnant. I'm sure many people looked at that situation, or one similar, and thought abortion would be the answer. I'm glad she didn't, or the world would be missing one beautiful sweet girl.

Hey, did your sister decide to raise your niece, or was she adopted? I'm glad to hear someone realize that what we think can be devastating, can truly turn out for good. I saw an ER show about 3 weeks...think it's the last time I'll watch it. Made Christian parents look like cult members for not pursuing an abortion for their 15 yr. old. Doc ended up sneaking an interuterine abortive device, and told the girl to just tell her folds she was having a miscarriage, b/c that's really what it was...and then they glorified the doc for "saving" this girl's life. My hubby and I were livid. LIVID...I'm still thinking about a post for it. Also, my sister had an unexpected pregnancy, and although about 24 at the time, it was BAD circumstances. We adore that little girl to pieces...

I wish more people would realize that the unexpected isn't always a bad thing. Plus there are so many, many other options. Sadly I know many women that think it's more "humane" to abort then to deliver a child where the may not be wanted.
I saw that ER episode too. It's sad really. they even made a point of Luca's faith yet he turned his back on it to "save" this girl. Too bad they wouldn't dare do a follow up episode with the girl to show how abortion can tramatize women and scar them emotionally for life.

I didn't see that episode, it makes me angry just hearing about it.

My niece lives with my parents, they basically are raising her.

Oh, Amie, what a sweet post. I'm proud of your sister (and your parents!!) for this choice. Abortion is never, never humane for the baby. I can't believe that otherwise logical people could come to that conclusion... (and I'm speaking as an adopted kid)
